Czech PM says Angela Merkel lined up for Prague visit

Czech prime minister Bohuslav Sobotka has said German Chancellor Angela Merkel is likely to visit Prague in the near future. Sobotka announced the visit, for which a date is still being sought, in answers to an on-line interview on the web pages of the tabloid Blesk. Topics for discussion would probably cover the immigration crisis, strengthening of the Schengen zone, trade issues, and modernization of industry. Relations between Prague and Berlin were sourced by the immigration crisis during which the Czech government took a stand against the mandatory share out of immigrants between EU countries.
